2013 Istanbul World Supersport FP2 Results: Lowes Pips Sofuoglu In Split Session

World Supersport’s second free practice session started on time, on a damp track. With just under twenty minutes to go, oil was trailed across the whole track and was, in some places, sitting on top of water, bringing out the red flags. As the cleanup operation was underway, it became clear that there would not be enough time after the track was safe to run the remaining nineteen minutes. Rather than throw the Superbike schedule off, it was decided to run the remainder of the session after the big bikes had been out. In the restarted session, Kenan Sofuoglu held the top spot until the last few minutes, when Sam Lowes came out and deposed him. Lowes was unable to beat his qualifying time, but Sofuoglu managed to slice four tenths off his lap time, getting very close to Lowes, offering hope of a home victory to him and his fans.

Christian Iddon and Kev Coghlan posted respectable times, approaching Sofuoglu’s qualifying times from yesterday, and adding themselves to the list of potential front-row starters.
